No - I think the purpose was to provide updates that fall between releases but given that the 6.1 release hasn't happened, it has assumed the role you suggest, at least at some level.

I too moved on to Ubuntu some 6 or so months ago because I could see that CentOS 6 was going to be a problem.

While I can appreciate that the CentOS are doing what they can do given the parameters they have to work from, I can only see Red Hat killing off their base in order to protect their base.

I'm all for a successful CentOS as I see it just helps the Linux & Red Hat ecosystem to have them successfully re-spin the upstream product.
